    Description

    A statistical strategy for spatial estimation and modeling of natural and environmental resource variables and indicators is presented. This strategy is part of an inventory and monitoring pilot study that is being carried out in the Mexican states of Jalisco and Colima. Fine spatial resolution estimates of key variables and indicators are outputs that will allow the modeling of complex ecological conditions relevant to resource planners and managers for supporting decision making processes at multiple scale levels. Several procedures for model evaluation and multiscale spatial estimation are also key components of this strategy. Point and spatial statistical estimates will be evaluated so that issues of accuracy and precision can be properly addressed. Products from the application of this strategy will be reported at multiple scales. Final recommendations for field implementation will be made in light of the evaluations of the study results.
